Claudia Pagès’ writing emerges from the agora and the marketplace, where language is passed back and forth alongside coins and vegetables, jokes and greetings swapped like counterfeit underwear and bags of pork gelatine. Her writing explores how, around the daily exchange of daily goods, a people and culture form and define themselves. Between the cities of Barcelona and London she searches for an example of this personal, bodily commerce—a swatch of discarded human or synthetic hair, lost or abandoned back to the street. From this point, Pagès seeks more encounters with the industry and ideology of human hair.

Her Hair is a poetic catalogue of those experiences, as Pagès begins a personal exploration of the production and exchange of both hair and language, braided together through process of creation and exploitation. In doing so she produces something between text and textile, as her language grows, is cropped, is unruly, is epilated and is shorn through contact with hair and its discontents.
